While they started as a simple peer-to-peer 3D printing network for locating desktop 3D printers in your area, Amsterdam-based 3D Hubs has since expanded into a full online custom part service. Now, the company offers industrial 3D printing, CNC machining, and injection molding. 

With the addition of sheet metal fabrication, announced at EMO Hannover last month, engineers now have one more reason to turn to 3D Hubs for all their custom part sourcing needs.

Used to produce thin metal parts in a range of different industries ranging from aerospace to packaging, sheet metal fabrication is well-suited for both prototypes and end-use parts. The range of materials offered by 3D Hubs for sheet metal fabrication includes aluminum, stainless steel, mild steel, and copper. The Sheet Metal can be processed via either laser cutting or bending.

“We want to be a one-stop-shop for manufacturing,” said CEO Bram de Zwart. “And that means making sure engineers have what they need when they need it. Adding sheet metal fabrication is all part of our mission to provide the easiest and most efficient way to source high-quality parts.”
